ASHE, Thomas.
(1808). ASHE, Thomas. Travels in America, Performed in 1806, for the Purpose of Exploring the Rivers Alleghany, Monongahela, Ohio, and Mississippi, and Ascertaining the Produce and Condition of Their Banks and Vicinity. London: Printed for Richard Phillips, 1808. 1st ed. 3 Vols. Orig. marbled boards rebacked in period-style gilt-ruled calf with original black morocco spine labels laid down, marbled endpapers, all edges marbled. Light rubbing to boards, occasional faint scattered foxing, else very good. HOWES A-352, "aa." "Slow travel permitted Ashe to observe many traits of the inhabitants and features of the countryside. His oblique observations persuaded him of the degeneracy in America of both man and beast...[T]he women were 'far superior' to any he had seen in Europe. As for soil, climate, and advantages of nature, Ashe was favorably impressed with the Ohio and Mississippi valleys, and his descriptions are generally credible. The chief reason for his journey was an intense interest in archaeological remains. He uncovered Indian tombs, sought bones of extinct animals, and climaxed his trip by swindling Dr. William Goforth out of a skeleton of a mammoth. Enlivened by misrepresentation and exaggeration, Ashe's account is interesting and higly readable."--Clark, Old South, II, 135.

WEBBER, John.
London Boydell & Co.: but 1820. First edition. 16 hand-coloured aquatints, with watermarks from 1805, 1819 & 1820. Folio. 15 leaves of descriptive text (plates II & III described on the same page). Postwar(?) three-quarter morocco, spine lettered in gilt, buckram boards, a.e.g., some very light spotting to title and (blank) preliminaries. The most striking, but the last of the many important books relating to Cook's voyages to be published. The sixteen beautiful aquatint plates are designed after drawings by Webber and were engraved by the artist himself. He produced uncoloured versions of some of these plates during his lifetime, but the magnificent aquatints found here only appeared after his death. The plates include natural history, ethnographic and scientific subjects relating to New Zealand, Tahiti, Cracatoa, Kamtschatka, Macao and Vietnam, including an image of the Discovery and the Resolution beating a path through the ice fields. Boydel, the publisher, hoped that owners of the atlas to the official account of the third voyage would add these to their collection, adding to the title-page: 'these plates form a new series, and are of the same size as those engraved for Captain Cooke's last voyage'. However, the bibliographical puzzle of this handsome book, as described by Forbes and Abbey, would suggest that this might not have been the case. Although the date on the title page is given as 1808, the plates are dated 'April 1, 1809' and printed on paper of varying dates. The copy described here for example has plates printed on Whatman paper with watermarks dated 1805, … [Click Below for Full Description]

s.l.n.d. (c.1808). MANUSCRIT in-8. 182pp. (i.e. 175pp.) Plein maroquin rouge, dos lisse orné, filet et guirlande d'encadrement dorés sur les plats, coupe ornées, toutes tranches dorées (P. Lefebvre). Précieux manuscrit soigneusement calligraphié dans une reliure en maroquin de Lefebvre. Le corps de l'ouvrage contient près de deux cents poèmes, madrigaux, épigrammes et chansons grivoises d'auteurs français de renom, avec des "Notes explicatives" qui éclairent les références cachées à des personnalités ou à des faits historiques, probablement glosées d'après divers ouvrages de mélange littéraire et d'anecdotes de cour (Pitaval, Bachaumont, Nougaret, etc.). Ce manuscrit contient également quelques pièces en vers restées apparement inédites, tout comme les notices regroupées dans la partie intitulée "Objets Divers": "Statistique de la Terre", "Aperçu de la population de Paris en 1809", "Salle de l'Opéra. Sa contenance et l'aperçu d'une recette complète". L'une de ces notices inédites, portant sur le jeu de la roulette, évoque la certitude de voir les joueurs perdre leur mise au profit des banquiers; elle est signée par "Dupont", lequel "certifie les faits énoncés ci-dessus, comme témoin oculaire". Cette signature, associée à l'apparente familiarité de l'auteur avec les questions démographiques et statistiques, nous invitent à formuler l'hypthèse selon laquelle l'auteur de ce manuscrit pourrait être Jean Dupont (1737-1819), banquier et administrateur devenu maire du 7e arrondissement de Paris puis Sénateur. Les pages s'inscrivent dans un joli encadrement encré. Précieuse curiosi … [Click Below for Full Description]

Charles Smith
1808. This set comprises of Charles Smith's English Counties along with two maps of Wales from the same date and a second edition map of England and Wales from 1814. Arguably one of the finest drawn and printed maps from this period and certainly comparable to Cary. All maps mounted in sections on linen. Full hand-colouring. Counties drawn to various scales. Details include main (turnpike) roads; parks; canals; churches and basic hachuring. The maps also reference longitude relative to Greenwich: an unusual feature at this time. The majority of maps are in wonderful condition with minimal wear, tight folds and no extraneous marking. The maps are housed in contemporary purpose-made solander boxes. All boxes show wear to the external surfaces, especially to front where the spines are worn with the leather dried, cracked and peeling. However, the insides of the boxes are in lovely condition: dry, no staining and little wear. 46 maps: 1x England; 2x Wales (North & South); 43x Counties (40 Counties [Yorkshire spread over 4 maps]) County scales range between 7/8th mile to 1" and 4 miles to 1". Accreditations under compass point (Wales and Yorkshire considered to be one map each): 27 maps credited to Jones and Smith at Pentonville; 6 at the Strand address; 6 with no stated address and 3 credited to Smith, Jones & Bye at the Strand address. 32 maps graded as VG+ (with very minimal wear/marking); 11 (slight wear and marking); 1 VG- (some sign of use); 1 G+ (Clear wear and marking); 1 G (Generally worn and marked).

MALEVILLE, Jacob von
Köln, Keil, 1808. 3 Bl., 508 S.; 1 Bl., 537 S., 2 Bl. Anzeigen; 1 Bl., 508 S.; 1 Bl., 522 S. Pappbände d. Zeit (berieben u. bestoßen, Rücken von Bd. 1 am Kopf mit Fehlstelle). Einzige deutsche Ausgabe von "Analyse raisonnée de la discussion du Code civil au Conseil d?Etat contenant le texte des lois, le précis des observations faites such chaque article et les motifs de la decision du Conseil" (1805). Maleville (1741-1824) wurde von Napoléon beauftragt, zusammen mit TRONCHET, PORTALIS und BIGOT-PRÉAMENEU einen Entwurf eines Code civil auszuarbeiten. Seine berühmte vierbändige "Analyse raisonnée" über die Diskussion zum Code civil im Staatsrat war ein umfassender Kommentar über das Zustandekommen, die Grundlagen und die Ausgestaltung jeden Artikels. Maleville behandelt darin in durchaus unparteiischer Weise die umstrittensten und kontroversesten Fragen im Entstehungsprozeß des Code civil. In der Befolgung der Legalordnung des Code civil zeigt Maleville an den einzelnen Gesetzen auf, warum die eine oder andere Meinung bei der Ausgestaltung des Gesetzes den Vorzug erhalten hat. Er fügt an, warum Lücken geblieben sind und vor allem, auf welche Weise die geltende Gesetzesregelung vom Ius Romanum auf der einen Seite und dem Gewohnheitsrecht (droit coutumier) auf der anderen Seite abgewichen ist. - Etwas gebräunt, vordere Vorsätze mit alten Eintragungen u.

Grant, Anne MacVicar (1755-1838).
London: Longman, Hurst, Rees and Orme, 1808. London: Longman, Hurst, Rees and Orme,, 1808. First edition. Very Good/Scottish-born Anne MacVicar Grant grew up in New York and came of age in Albany, in the footsteps of her father's military service during the French and Indian War. In Albany, she became the effective ward of Philip Schuyler and his wife Catalina (who is the "American Lady" of the title). When the author was in her mid-teens, the family returned to North Central Scotland, settling first in Fort Augustus, and (in her marriage to James Grant) at Laggan. Her considerable literary engagement flourished after her husband's death (1801). The memoir of her childhood in America gives a unique perspective on the social life of women in Colonial times, and remarkably sympathetic and perceptive observations on the Mohawk and other indigenous Americans.

[CODE NAPOLÉON]
Paris, De l'Imprimerie Impériale, 1808; in-8, 432 pp. + 2 ff.n.ch (faux-titre et titre de la table) + 120 pp., demi-veau marbré à coins de l'époque, dos lisse à faux nerfs, pièce de titre de maroquin rouge, plats recouverts d'un papier marbré imitant le décor du cuir utilisé au dos. Escoffier 149, pour l'édition originale du Code Civil (1804). Remise en vente du Code Napoléon paru pour la première fois sous ce titre en 1807 ; seule la page de titre a été réimprimée à la date de 1808, tout le reste est strictement identique à l'édition originale. Par le décret du 3 septembre de 1807, à l'occasion d'une seconde édition, le Code civil des Français promulgué sous ce titre le 30 ventôse an XII (21 mars 1804) fut rebaptisé officiellement Code Napoléon. Il s'agissait, selon Bigot de Préameneu qui présenta ce décret, d'un "hommage rendu par la vérité à celui à qui ce grand ouvrage doit sa naissance, à celui qui, dans le plan général comme dans ses principales dispositions, y a imprimé les traits impérissables de son génie prévoyant et créateur?". L'empereur, à n'en pas douter, attachait le plus grand prix à cette décision. À Sainte-Hélène, il affirma encore : "Ma vraie gloire, ce n'est pas d'avoir gagné quarante batailles : Waterloo effacera le souvenir de tant de victoires. Ce que rien n'effacera, ce qui vivra éternellement, c'est mon Code civil". À propos de la mention "Édition originale et seule officielle", présente sur la page de titre et dont on sait qu'elle ne correspond pas à la définition habituellement donnée d'une édition originale (la première impression ou la première … [Click Below for Full Description]

Gall, Franz Joseph: = (Adelon, Nicolas Philibert)
A Paris, Chez Giguet et Michaud, 1808, 8°, 254 pp., Halbledereinband der Zeit. Erste Ausgabe einer der wichtigsten autorisierten Quellen! Bevor Franz Joseph "im März 1808 den entscheidenden, wenn auch letztlich vergeblichen, Schritt dazu tut, wird er nicht müde, der interessierten Öffentlichkeit, und dazu gehört der Fachkundige so gut wie der aufgeschlossene oder bloß sensationslüsterne Laie, seine neue Lehre nahezubringen. Aus der Reihe der zahlreichen Unternehmungen und Veranstaltungen, die diesem Zweck dienen, soll hier lediglich der erste große hirnphysiologische Kurs erwähnt werden, den Gall am 15.1.1808 eröffnet und über den von allen Pariser Zeitungen die Gazette de France in vierzehn Folgen, nämlich vom 21.1. bis 23-2.1808, wohl am ausführlichsten berichtet. Diese Berichte stammen aus der Feder des Mediziners Nicolas-Philibert Adelon (1782-1862), eines Gail- Anhängers, der sie, erweitert, verbessert und von Gail gebilligt, umgehend als "Analyse d'un cours du docteur Gail, ou physiologie et anatomie du cerveau d'après son Système." Paris 1808 in Buchform herausbringt. Sie können deshalb in jenen turbulenten Monaten, in denen sich Zustimmung und Widerspruch aufs heftigste an Gall entzünden und ihm immer wieder schrill der abwegige Materialismusvorwurf gemacht wird, als authentische Darstellung seiner neuen Wissenschaft gelten. Adelon weiß auch schon zu berichten: "et d'ailleurs le public jouira bientôt d'un travail de M. Gail lui-même, sur la partie anatomique de son système; qu'il doit développer incessamment dans un rapport à l'Institut." Den kranioskopischen Aspekt … [Click Below for Full Description]

(3f. bl.), broché. - Completa manoscritto autografo di 12 pagine in-8 6 fogli sotto difficili da decifrare, forse: "Sade o regni di The One" e pubblicato con il titolo "Alcune osservazioni sulla Sade" in Review No. 3-4 del 7 agosto 1946. Manoscritto scrittura molto denso, con molte cancellature, correzioni e aggiunte. "E 'il pensiero di Sade spingendo che Blanchot a compimento, ed è anche quella di Blanchot che compie quello di Sade." (Georges Bataille) La scrittura e l'amicizia di battaglia non sono probabilmente estranei a l'importanza Blanchot dare la sua vita a questa figura paterna della sua riflessione filosofica. Queste poche osservazioni su Sade, tuttavia, sono il primo studio che Blanchot dedicato a questo scrittore che aveva fino a quel momento quasi mai menzionato. In questa prima analisi imparziale e talvolta gravi, Blanchot sottolinea le debolezze della postura letteraria Sade e relativa immoralità in una società post-rivoluzionaria ricco di contraddizioni ideologiche. Tuttavia, sotto l'artificio di espressione estrema, Blanchot rivela una filosofia molto più sconcertante e sovversiva che questi "grandi stravaganza." Con notevole acutezza, ritrae uno spirito unico, tutto sposando alti ideali del suo tempo, ma collocandoli nel filtro della sua singolarità nichilista: "Libertà, a suo avviso, è che il divieto per chiunque di essere qualcosa di diverso da ciò che vuole, è quello di non dire nulla.

Lewis, Matthew Gregory
Printed by D. N. Shury, 7, Berwick Street, for Longman, Hurst, Rees, and Orme, Paternoster-Row, London. 12mo, four volumes: pp. [i-vii] viii-xxiii [xxiv] [1-3] 4-307 [308: blank]; [i-iv] [1-3] 4-335 [336: blank]; [i-iv] [1-3] 4-276; [i-iv] [1-3] 4-325 [326: blank], rebound in full brown calf, t.e.g., marbled endpapers. First edition. Lewis's Gothic sampler, interspersed with nightmare and graveyard verse, "contains examples of oriental, Germanic, medieval, and monastic Gothicism in both the terrific and horrific modes. Robert D. Spector observes that although these tales are pure Gothic, Lewis 'had toned down the ghastly, supernatural elements which had made THE MONK a sensational, although infamous, success.' Yet, Lewis's fondness for an ugly macabre as well as a sadistic supernatural is still very clearly in evidence. In fact, Poe's title, 'Tales of the Grotesque and Arabesque,' could serve as a title for the Gothic variety of Lewis's collection. As may be judged from the modern reprintings of several stories, each of the prose tales is long enough to qualify as a Gothic novella. In their order, the tales are: MISTRUST: OR, BLANCH AND OSBRIGHT, A FEUDAL ROMANCE (medieval Gothic adapted from a drama by von Kleist, THE FAMILY OF SCHROFFENSTEIN); THE ANACONDA (an East Indian story using the natural horror associated with a serpent); THE FOUR FACARDINS (a Gothic Marchen with touches of the Schauerromantik); MY UNCLE'S GARRET WINDOW (domestic or neighborhood Gothic whose theme bears comparison with Hawthorne's story of connubial espionage, 'Wakefield'); AMORASSAN: OR, THE SPIR … [Click Below for Full Description]
